In 1893 he was a candidate for legislature on the Republican ticket, and made a remarkable fight (or his party, and would probably have been elected had It not been for complicated political circumstances at that time. His record as a public spirited citizen needs no recommendation. It speaks for Itself. He has. in all his dealings with hla fellow men brer, fair, 'upright and Impartial, and as a business man he stands without a peer, -before the community. His Republicanism has been tempered by many storms and cannot be questioned. Mr. George Bell is another Eighth ward boy. . He was born In that sectionof the city August 2. 1867. He Is the son of Michael Bell, who canrn fmm England In 185.1, and located In the Eighth ward the same year, and for many years was superintendent of the coal mlne3 of Hobbs, Brockunler & Co.'h glass works.

Since 1889 he haa been engaged in the coal business, operating the old Archibald mine under the fiini name of Bell Bros. Mr. Bell haa been a resident of the Eighth ward since hla birth. \ where he la universally esteemed and respected. He Is a Mason and an officer in one of the lodges of that order. He Is a true'blue Republican In all that term implies.

It Is still declining, but not at such a rapid r?o as earlier In the wt^Jc This fealure haa encouraged a new town lot contingent 10 Jump tnto the fray, believing It I* a good thing and they must help push It along. Where It Is possible to get up close to one of the big wells the new derricks almost touch comers. In the vicinity of'the Meldren and Irvine well on the Matthews threesere lot, there are seven wells starting on an many different lots and an acre In circumference would take all within its limits. At the present rate new work is starting it would be a conservative estimate to say that there will be seventyfive wells drilling In the Cecil pool by the. end of the month. Of the entire number, one-half wil be on town lots, or l>maJl leases. In the McConneU end of th?? Held the Royal Gns Company has drilled in lis No. S Mawhlnney and has a producer good for l!50 barrels a day. The excitement has been so great In the Cecil district that other localities havo attracted very little attention. There In quite a good showing ot new work starting In the vicinity of Coffey Station. In Washington county. Pa. The work now starting and under way In that locality was occasioned by the Aiken and Elcho wells on the Ernst farm, which was drilled in last month and started at fifteen barrels an hour. Some two months ago the People's Heat & Light Company, of Washlhgton, drilled In a fair fifth sand well on the Gabbey farm, located a little more than a mile south of Washington. The same .company has Just completed a well on the Wilson farm. In that vicinity and got a good show for oil In the flfth sand and has a fair gas pressure. Jennings Bros. & Murphy have drilled in their test well on the David Booher farm, in Tyler county, thirty-five feet into the sand and shut down to move back the boiler. The well Is gassing nicely. The location of the well, Is northeast of the Kyle and.Weekly wells on Indian creek, and may be regarded as an Important test. The Kanawha Oil Company haa concluded that its well on the Mills tract lu WeUel county Is too small a&a Big Injun sand producer and will drill it to the Gordon. The Mountain State Gas Company's well on the Mason farm, known as the "Jug Handle" well, and reported a few days ago as showing for a small producer, is now Reported a failure. Th?' South Penn OH Company's No. 4 well on the Silas Henderson farm, in the Bullman district, near Wick, is eighty-five feet In the snnd and has found nothing. It will get into thfc duster -list. The HOrchers & Company well on the Cork farm, on Little Fishing creek. Wetzel county. Is showing for a ten or fifteen .barrel well It' is located 200 feet southwest of the -Alpha Oil Company's No. l on the Kosher farm. They are still drilling and hope to get a second pay. The wells in Meigs county. Ohio, are not making much progress. The Pittsburgh and Ohio Oil Company's test on the Carr farm, near Pomeroy, 13 down 850 feet and has a bad fishing job, and they may have to move the rig. The test on the Dye farm.

The play is one of r?*marknhle Interest, and has for Its theme the political system of Russia. It shows the despotic laws and how they are exercised. It pictures the people struggling against oppression. It portrays the nihilist, the secret police and exile. It shows in fact every class ot society, and depicts scenes ranging from St. Petersburg to the snow-laden plains of Siberia. "The Midnight Special," the latest and best of railroad melodramatic productions, will appear at the Grand Opera House Monday, the 20th. An exchange says: "The Midnight Special" began a week's engagement last night before one of the largest and moat enthusiastic audiences of the season. Among the many Interesting scenes Is one representing the Grand Union dej?ot. which is really one of the most realistic bits of stage craft seen here In years, and Is closely seconded by the Interior of the Woodland Vine Distillery, showing the presses at work; in fact, the painter's brush has done much toward the success of "The Midnight Special."

The Intelligencer Sfcnrei Bicycle Couriers to Bring In the Returns from the Outlying Precinct*. The Democratic primaries occur today. Within the last twenty-four hours the interest in the affair ha* greatjy increated and the election of to-day promises to be earnestly contested. For sheriff, of course, there will be no contest. The two candidates (or prosecuting Attorney, however, are putting up a pretty lively battle. Yesterday's round was a "beaut," both candidates getting In some "hot blows. Messrs. Robinson and Wilson are both getting over the cqunty in great shape and nnnmnp inousmiup 01 nanus i-?ery uujr. The result of the battle for the prosecuting attorney plum Is In doubt.though some who claim to pose as good Judges, predict that Robinson will come under the wire winner by a length to spare. For clerk of the county court. Messrs. PlatofT Zane and George F. Otte are both confident of success, as are Messrs. J. W. Mitchell, John Walton and John A. White, for clerk of the circuit court. It is claimed that the support the lawyers of the city are giving Walton, may be Instrumental In giving him the lead to-day. But the others are hard lighters und will con* tc$t every point. The only other contest Is for assessor Jn the cJty district, the opponents being Messrs. B. H. Swnrtz. and D. Z. PhilHps. Swartz Is said to have the better show for the nomination. The other offices are sheriff and assessor in the country district. There is a contest for neither. As announced in yesterday's paper, the Intelligencer will assist the Democratic county committee In getting the returns of to-day's primaries, from the precincts that cannot be reached by telephone. The riders who have volunteered Tor the courier service are as follows: Valley Grove, Liberty district?Walter Worls. Cool Breeze school house,' Trladelphla district?Jepse E. McCausIand. / Brick school houBe, Richland district ?J. Hers berg. Glenn's run school house?Walter Cochran. The only precinct not arranged for Is Potomac, in Liberty district. If possible arrangements win be made for ft Bethany wheelman to go there, and send In the returns by telephone from Bethany, only three miles distant. Of the couriers named above. Walter Worls Is the "Hero of Caldwell's Run." On the night of the election In November. *??4, he was assigned the trip to the Red school house. In Ritchie district, | out Caldwell's run. 'The roads were In fearful condition. On the return trip Worls came down the hills at a terrific < trip. On the last hill before entering the city he collided with a sleeping cow ( and nearly hilled himself.

You know just whit we mean. Some men and women endeavor temporarily to overcome that Tired Feeling by great force of will. But this is unsafe, as it pulls powerfully upon the nervous system, which will not long stand such strain. Too many paople " work on their nerves," and the result is seen in unfortunate wrpcki marked "nervous prostration," in every direction. That tired Feeling is a positive proof of thin, weak, impure blood; for, if tho blood is rich, red, vitalized and vigorous, it imparts life and energy to every nerve, organ and tissuo of the body.
